High on methamphetamine, a Kansas City, Mo. man allegedly jumped from a Platte County Sheriff’s Office patrol vehicle traveling at 60 miles per hour while under arrest. John Bluml, 27, faces charges of drug intoxication DWI and resisting arrest from a November 2014 incident, according to court documents. Charges were filed last week.
A probable cause statement details a traffic stop on Nov. 23. The deputy involved pulled Bluml over for erratic driving after he passed the police vehicle on the right hand side and the shoulder. Bluml failed field sobriety tests performed along westbound Highway 152 near NW Ambassador Drive, and he was taken into custody.
According to the deputy, Bluml began acting strangely once in the patrol vehicle before opening the back door and jumping out. He then attempted to run away but was caught and detained again.
Authorities took Bluml first to the Platte County Detention Center and then to a local hospital where he was admitted due to state of mind and potential drug use. A consensual blood draw of Bluml’s blood tested positive for meth and amphetampines.
Both charges against him are misdemeanors.
